There is exciting news coming out of Charlotte for the Kissell campaign. Young Professionals for Kissell with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and Congressman John Spratt (D-SC) will be hosting Ambassador Joe Wilson at a fundraising event in Charlotte on September 22, 2007. Ambassador Wilson is a symbol to many of us of the courage it takes to tell the truth and stand for what is right regardless of the cost.

As I said when I announced my campaign, Fiscal Security is National Security, and China is a looming threat. I've repeated a thousand times that if the United States were a publicly traded corporation, our major stockholder would be China because they keep buying up all of the debt we've been spiraling into.

It comes as no surprise then, at least to me, that China is making more headlines today than criticism for press and human rights violations as they begin their one year countdown to the Beijing Olympic Games. Amid all the other bad news on Wall Street today, MarketWatch reminds us:

"The U.S. and China are engaging in mutually assured economic destruction..."

One of my friends in Durham sent me information about a hearing by the Durham County Commission for the real estate transfer tax. The forwarded email included the following, which I think you will find very interesting.

You may have heard about an effort to repeal Mecklenburg County's half-cent sales tax, which funds the Charlotte Area Transportation System, aka CATS. And you may have heard that the arguments coming from groups like "Sensible Charlotte Area Transportation" (SCAT) are almost as bad as their graphics. I mean, they're not a threat to transit, right?

While the main man behind the signature campaign to get the transit tax repeal on the ballot has been discredited (so much so that he dropped out of the at-large race for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Board of Education), the Charlotte Chamber and the "official" group pushing to keep the transit tax has been making its own mistakes. They've been in trouble for influencing a UNCC study, and they've operated within the frame that the transit tax is all about light rail. There's just one small problem:

Repealing the Transit Tax will dismember our bus system.

That's why, this Thursday, a grassroots group is coming together to Save Our Buses!
